The days and weeks seem to fly by this time of year. School is back in session, the weather cools as days grow shorter - and the holidays are just around the corner.

You'll enjoy inspiring speakers, networking, and time toward your career development with earned CEUs. You'll also know that you accomplished something important for yourself this year. We hope to see you there!

All Our Best,

It takes just as much energy to wish as it does to plan.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for Opioid Use Disorder
Medication-Assisted Treatment refers to the use of certain FDA-approved medications to relieve drug and alcohol cravings and has become the standard of care for opioid use disorder.

The ultimate goal of MAT is full recovery, including the ability to live a self-directed life. This treatment approach has been shown to:
  • Improve patient survival
  • Increase retention in treatment
  • Decrease illicit opiate use and other criminal activity among people with substance use disorders
  • Increase patients’ ability to gain and maintain employment
  • Improve birth outcomes among women who have substance use disorders and are pregnant

Read the latest blog post on the CADTP website to learn more about medication-assisted treatments for alcohol and/or opioid use disorder.

What is DUI MAT?
